Also, major dealerships use this platform to announce promotional offers and local events which increases their popularity among the masses.

Mid-age Popularity: According to the analysis, individuals in the age group 30-60 acquired almost 61% of the used car sales volume. The demand is basically fuelled by the consumers not wanting to buy new cars due to several factors, including the cost of licenses, and the decline in the vehicle’s value once they are licensed. It is to be noted that younger generation (18-30) accounted for 34% of the used car sales volume while the older generation (>60) accounted for only 5% of the sales volume.
